-positioned assets so that fema personnel are working closely with state and local governments. there has been extraordinarily close coordination between state, federal, and local governments. >> and everybody on the local level have backed that up. 1-800-steph-1-2 is the number to call that's 1-800-steph-1-2. let's talk to don in florida about privatizing fema. hey, don. >> caller: yeah, thanks for taking my call. i have a political strategy for ohio actually a democratic one. but romney is trying to do whatever he can to get any press coverage he can possibly get. these food thing, i heard he called these governors and all of this stuff. i know he has been running for president for the last 20 years it seems, he wouldn't even be in the picture but he is just trying to get his name out there, because obama and the storm will get all of the reaction. >> and it seems like him calling the governors would be just getting in the way. >> and what a coincidence he is doing this in all of the battleground states. >> he'll privatize anything for a buck. >> yeah. >> one way to get r
is a former government hacker, who is now on the good side, a security specialist, one of the great hackers in the world, he last year decided to explore the vulnerabilities in the iphone. he found a vulnerability in the iphone that when he deployed it the right way, and this was for a contest, it enabled him to take over a portion of that iphone. industrial control computers are on a lot of systems, water systems, electric grids and so on. last year, a disgruntled hacker abroad went into a water system in south houston, texas, and got control of those computers. the list goes on and on. there are hacks of google, security firms. there are millions of attacks, literally millions of attacks around the world and intrusions on computer systems every day. probably the most phenomenal attack involves a warm called stuxnet. in that case, the u.s. government, i think working with israel, but the united states government to felt -- the u.s. government develop a computer warned that went into the nuclear processing facilities in iran and disrupted those computers. >> it was developed by the u.s. gov
is that i spent 25 years working for the federal government in a lot of agencies. those agencies comprise 40% of our discretionary budget. the misapplication of resources going on in our federal government should be stopped. they should be listening to the constituents. thank you very much. >> thank you. i am running for the united states senate because i want to make a difference. i believe america needs a new generation of leadership. what is wrong with america is extreme politics and extreme wealth. my opponent to represent the status quo. charlie summer's represents extreme politics and angus king represents extreme wealth. what i am offering the state of maine is someone who is not beholden to outside interests. we need a new generation of leadership. i hope to have your support. >> my name is andrew ian dodge. i am in this race because i believe the issues of liberty, freedom, and individual rights are being trampled on left and right, whether it is a resting -- arresting a farmer for selling raw milk. i have a touch of ethnicity about me and i am the youngest in the race. i hope we ha
the official policy of federal government actually occurred during the clinton administration when the iraq liberation act was passed in 1998 and signed into law by president clinton and supported by many republicans in congress. it had bipartisan support. vice president gore was a supporter, that is why i am not completely convinced that that is a counterfactual point. we have a lot of interest and people were casting around, trying to find solutions. and i do think the initialization of afghanistan was correct, whether that means we need to be there for 10 years or until afghanistan becomes connecticut, that is another matter entirely. but i think the initial strikes against those were necessary and just. but then to go out and pursue regime change, prior to 9/11, they simply casted in search of a solution to a problem with a little class saw. >> libertarianism was fiscally conservative, so we will get back to the middle point. based on what he just said, during the bush years, bush-cheney, the focus was foreign policy. guantÁnamo bay, civil liberties, there is something that animated th
years in the federal government. those agencies comprise about 40% of our discretionary budget. they are not doing that and they should be looking at the constituents. thank you very much. >> moderator: senator cynthia dill? dill: i am running because i want to make a difference. i believe america needs a new generation of leadership. what is wrong with the congress is extreme politics and in this particular race, by two major opponents represent the status quo. on one hand we have charlie summers and on the other hand we have angus king. today's "new york times" characterizes this race as karl rove versus michael bloomberg. what i am offering the people of the state of maine is to independence, someone who is not local and out-of-state money but only beholden to you and your family. so i look forward to tonight's discussion. we do need a new generation of leadership and i'm pleased to be in the race and i hope to have your support. >> moderator: thank you andrew ian dodge? dodge: those of you in maine might recognize my name. we have been here since before maine was a state an
it was excellent, because it is. he said if i was not getting something from the federal government that i should call him directly at the white house, and he was going to be here, and not worry about dealing with anybody else, deal with him. >> there's that 3:00 am phone call. >> yeah. we were talking about that yesterday too, if you get rid of that federal aid it's problematic in times of disaster, because people in the state are in the midst of a disaster. >> exactly. they don't have a lot of ways to communicate or drive around -- >> why don't they drive the buses -- >> this is the exact time that you need federal assistance. >> you have an outside perspective, so you can assess how much equipment or assistance you need in that environment. there is also news too that he was upset with the mayor of atlantic city. >> i heard about that. what exactly went on? >> from what i understand is he was upset because people got stranded there. chris christie said get out, take this seriously, and he is blaming the mayor of atlanta city for sending people to shelters which are very c
and a rebuilding effort where you get the keynesian sort of spurt of growth because you're going to have government spending and you're going to have people spending to rebuild. so, that counter acts the negative gdp growth, that the cost of this. but i will tell you this, this is not a terrorist attack, what is scary about this, is that when you, you can have something very serious like that, and the markets could be shut down for a lot longer and that will be a problem. and don't discount the fact when markets are shut down for a long time, people question the economy. and businesses cannot get financing, stocks don't trade and you don't know the value of corporate america. neil: you sound like a callus individual. >> there's other-- >> there are thousands of lives could have been in danger and here you are pursuing the almighty dollar. >> i did not say put people's lives in danger, i said have a contingency plan. neil: but you need human beings in some way, shape or form in that area, yes or no? >> no. neil: liar, liar, pants on fire. look, whatever helps capitalism. >> no offense, the floor tra
rehearsed emergency response protocols by many institutions and government. there is a collective sense of denial too about how poorly presented the city is for events of this scale. how poorly prepared have we been, steve? >> well, very, especially about flood waters. irene, tropical storm irene was only six months ago and the water, you remember, washed right up to the top of the battery but didn't come over. it wasn't hard to image then what a surge of ten or 11 or 12 feet higher might have done. and yet, it seems, and we'll have time to sort all of this south when we get through this emergency, that vy little was done to protect underground infrastructure from a very predictable surge. first of all. second of all, the extent to which the transportation and power system were vulnerable to this kind of weather, was known for ten years, predicted. again it's not clear that either in the private sector or the public sector, the city was illingo iest in what are frankly very large sums necessary to prevent this kind of disruption. >> rose: let me turn to you, paul. in your piece i think
days to bring back a constitutional government. though we have a lot of other issue that are going on in society, that can be handled at different points with different methed others, i'm a constitutionist and i believe the founding document needs to be respected. because it involves things like civil liberties which makes us americans, these are thing that if you are republican or democrat makes no difference, things that will pull us together. also with the economy which is another big sticking point. we are supposed to have constitutionly -- the congress is supposed to take care of our monetary policy but since we shrugged that off to another entity and it's not doing a good job of it. these are the things i want to get back to doing as a congressman if you will elect me, we will see a lot -- we will see things happen differently in this country. >> let's get to some of the questions, one thing people are wondering about is the economy. 16 trillon dollars in debt. unemployment at 8%, housing market is a mess. what would do you? >> you have to face it by addressing monetary pol
. this is something, big government says in this. you have to read to believe, disaster cold face is one of the most vital functions of big government, which is why mitt romney wants to eliminate it. david asman was reading same "new york times," he ripped it up and started eating it. >> it did not taste good. neil: what do you make of this. >> they are little bit sidin politicize a natural disaster, that is what they are doing. if you can move it from state to private sector is goes in a better direction, they say, that is, i quote, an absurd notion. they say because big government is better, whether it is fema or a new department of business that president obama wants too create about which we can talk more if you have time. but bottom line, fema has a terrible track record, most big federal bureaucracies do, they come up with their man made inside of the beltway, which does not necessarily fit when applied to a state or local community, any time there is a difference of opinion with between the local guys and federal government, the feds -- 92 bu92. neil: but they all welcome fema help. >> when i
waiting to get in. that's good news. a couple developments here. the state and federal government authorities have signed an executive order that weighs state requirements fuel tankers register and pay a tax before unloading, that's supposed to expedite things and the obama administration has issued a temporary blanket waiver on the jones act which will allow additional oil tankers coming from the gulf of mexico to enter the ports up here. recall this was a big deal during katrina. the jones act requires all vessels carrying products between u.s. ports to fly under the u.s. flag, be built in the u.s., and be crude mostly be u.s. citizens the fact they're waiving that will hopefully expedite more fuel in here. what are they doing on the ground? trying to get the power to restored to gas stations that don't have power. you can't pump gas if you don't have power. power is restored to the terminals to get the fuel, of course, on to the trucks. that's a priority. now, there are trucks moving and there is gas here. the issue are those other two issues really kind of slowing things down
of government, rather than air to be arrests and monarchees. the united states isn't run by the wealthiest or by some sort of birth rite. we participate by our vote and elect leaders to represent us. president lincoln's gettysburg address is a constant reminder. the government of the people, by the people, and for the people. shall not perish from this earth. one person, one vote. that's a precious right. that's liberal. believing that government should be active in supporting social and political change. so there's the constitution. the founders built in the ability to amend it and to pass laws to form a more perfect union. things like, oh, abolishing slavery and segregation, giving women the right to vote and to choose, repealing don't ask don't tell so regardless of who you love you can serve in the military. plus our government has programs to help level the playing field so that everyone can succeed. like the g.i. bill. the lily ledbetter fair pay act. medicare. pell grants. head start. unemployment. is there anyone who hasn't benefited from at least one of these programs? fairness. t
will be insured by the federal government rather than the insurance industry. and very little impact on insurers'. ashley: 5 looking at information on insurance pricing. rates have been steadily going up over the last year in the wake of sandy they you expect premiums to go higher? >> from an insurance industry perspective, don't mean to sound insensitive, but the loss is not a big enough deal to change the what we are seeing is property reinsurance, stabilization because this has been a pretty good year. >> when you look at the trends and a meteorologist i am not, but i am hearing this is going to be some winter, still storms ahead. what do you think about that? >> you will certainly see a different perspective but one of the flaws of the insurance is does the insurance industry is bad things have to happen. ashley: weather patterns are changing. does this change the strategy of insurance companies moving forward? >> you are seeing a heightened flow level of caution, buying more insurance, in recognition that three bad things happen, it takes a sizable loss. more cautious in terms of aggregate
of attacks on our consulate, on other outposts of the british government, the red cross. somebody denied that, and the president says he cannot answer that question because there is an fbi investigation. >> well, we do know that the first responsibility for the protection of u.s. embassies and consulates is with the host government, and we also know that the host government is not capable of providing security for our embassy or our consulate, so therefore the responsibility falls to the department of state. and it is without question the department of state that the ambassador all over the world, ambassadors' describe what they believe to be their security situation and make requests for assistance. clearly there were a great many signals among other indices were leaving. we noon that september 11th was an anniversary of the 2001 attacks on america, and from everything you can read it is pretty clear that there were requests that were not fulfilled. we know for a fact that the security was inadequate because we lost four americans, including the ambassador. lou: we lost those four lives. and
and business and tourism and leisure. >> everything but government. government was down by 13,000. >> yes. >> because of state and local government layoffs probably. >> absolutely. >> at the same token you want 250,000 or more new jobs to keep up with population growth to show the economy is expanding at any kind of vigorous pace. >> we do. i will remind people when the president took office, when he started we lost 4 million jobs, now we have added 5.4 million jobs, that's 1.2 million additional jobs that have come back. we are somewhat out of the ditch but we still need more help. we need cooperation and that's why the president says we need to look at infrastructure development to put construction workers back, to get teachers back on the payroll by passing the american jobs act that has componentsents to allow fort increase in sgroets and hopefully extend the payroll tax we'll have a stimulus so people can spend more money. >> you've been to 13 states, is that correct? >> i've been out talking about manufacturing jobs and talking with community colleges, to see how we can get the mism
and officials, reassuring that the government will be there to help. >> we're going to get this whole thing -- we're going to get this whole thing set up. >> reporter: at his side republican governor chris christie, a romney supporter. to show he was moving beyond partisan politics. >> he has been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm. >> reporter: back on the campaign trail, romney toned down his criticism of the president, coping his message positive as he tries to win over florida voters. >> washington has to begin to come together. >> reporter: accompanied by the state's popular former governor jeb bush, romney emphasized his own record as massachusetts governor of bipartisanship. >> it was not lost on me to get anything done at all, and even to have my veto upheld, i need to have people across the aisle that i could work with. >> remember the president talked about romneysia? well it's contagious. congressman ryan's caught it. >> reporter: vice president joe biden accused the romney campaign of lying in a new ad in ohio that implies the auto
, reassuring them the government would be there to help. >> everybody safe? that's the most important thing then we'll get this whole thing set up. >> reporter: apartment his side was new jersey republican governor chris christie, a mitt romney supporter. recognizing christie for his leadership the president sought to show he was moving beyond partisan politics. >> he's been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm. >> reporter: back on the campaign trail romney on wednesday toned down his criticism of the president keeping his message positive as he tried to win over florida voters. >> washington has to begin to come together. >> reporter: accompanied by the state's former popular governor jeb bush romney emphasized his own record as massachusetts governor of bipartisanship. >> it was not lost on me to get anything done at all and even the have my veto upheld i had to have people across the aisle i kwork with. >> reporter: the temporary cease-fire didn't dpoend the number twos. >> remember the president talked about romnesia? well, it's contagious.
. macarthur airport. it is having its effect on business and government. we are responding as quickly as possible. obviously we have individuals helping us clean the road and making sure it is safe for people to get back and forth. connell: tony, this is dagen mcdowell. you know when they will clear the bridge to get that moving? >> i spoke with the ceo of long island power authority. their focus is going to be in the next day or two on getting the hospitals and nursing homes established and clearing the major arteries of power lines. we will not be able to get into the neighborhoods that are affected. there are dozens of neighborhoods throughout the south shore until they are able to turn off the power and work on once. several days before residents should expect to see power. they are focusing on the other institutions first. dagen: tony, thank you. >> thank you very much. connell: new york city rescue workers still dealing with this. taking a live look at the crane on 57th street in the heart of manhattan. an astonishing, horribly awful sight as it collapsed yesterday. again, how
. evidence of progress. this is an interesting piece of evidence. the growth of government spending is the lowest that it has been in 60 years, since eisenhower. eisenhower's growth of spending was 3.2%. look at this. kennedy, johnson, carter 13%. reagan george w. bush, obama 1.4%. that is the growth of government spending. now that that you just saw here that is the so-called status quo, progress. so if mitt romney's big change means he is going to skew the tax code in favor of the folks at the top, you can have that kind of change. if mitt romney's kind of change is to change back to george w. bush's policies, that's the kind of change i can't believe in. that's the kind of change we do not need. we're not at the promise land yet, but we are on the right track, and you are going to decide in eleven days whether we're going to turn back. up next if i didn't know better, i would say mitt romney's surrogates held a contest this week. let's see who can say something so outrageous that the can digit will have to go onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn what we need are peopl
@. rich: much of that throughout the federal government today. the metro system is closed. the subway system. the busing system closed today. there have been power outages. president obama back at the white house, earlier than he at expected. at 12:45 p.m. we expect to hear from president obama. we will also hear from fema. they are waiting to see what happens. fema has moved water bottles and blankets all up and down the east coast. right now it is a matter of where will the storm hit and how hard is it going to hit? they are waiting and trying to figure out where all of this will happen. back to you. dagen: thank you so much for that. sandy already closing markets and delaying earnings reports and good even close to jobs report on friday. however, what would happen if that did happen. connell: art laffer joins us now. the statement about 45 minutes ago came from the census bureau. they said there was no decision as they put it on delaying the jobs report on friday. we both said we think it is unlikely. you do not want to feed into anything. what do you say? >> i think they will publ
it is the job of the government, and then they went off on the next public lands thing. then, you have been up so much time in this, that leads to one, two, three less town hall people. i did it a couple of times, as many times i felt i could do it without completely blow in the format. with guns, we went off on something. they started talking about single mothers. >> single mothers and marriage, yes. >> i will say that the format that has evolved is better today than back in the day when it was much more strict. we were told u.s. the question, no follow-up, two minutes, one minute, and i was told to interrupt it they did not. there was a red light and a buzzer. there were restrictions. today, they are given more time to have a conversation, and you learn more that way. come to the debate of every intention of ignoring the rules they have agreed to, there is very little the moderator can do. when i did the sit down debate with dick cheney and john edwards, who i would ask different questions of today -- [laughter] there was a light. they could see the light. they knew when they were over time.
the lid on crazy government spending. >> the ads were very effective. they made more than 40 eisenhower america spots. >> the camera in eisenhower was looking up to him, and the voters voters -- he was looking down a bit. adley stevens felt it was not proper to run the ads. >> eisenhower won by a landslide. and then stevens was running in his own television ads. >> jennifer: those were the days. now i'm joined again by charlie pierce and karl frisch. karl i want to read you this about campaign tv ads. do you agree? >> yes. [ laughter ] >> i think anybody who has ever been a part of making television commercials can tell you that. and it's particularly true when budgets of money is being spent. let's say you are running for congress. it's great to have millions of dollars, and have millions of dollars spent on your behalf but at a certain point, all of the ads in the world can't get you elected. you can look at examples all over the country of wealthy people who have poured tens of millions of dollars in their own candidacy, and gone on to lose. >> jennifer: and charl
fema headquarters and says the federal government is standing by to provide any assistance it can. >> reporter: i hope you can get a sense here of just how huge these waves have become. they have broached the board walk. the water is under the hotels and restaurants. it's quite an indication of how much this water is going to be piling up later. >> no kidding. and we know a lot of power outages are expected. anything in that area so far? >> reporter: no. all the power is still on for now. but there is a lot of anticipation, there are going to be rolling blackouts. and utility crews are out here trimming trees trying to keep the power lines clear. when this water really starts moving inland, if there's wind, could topple the trees and bringing down the power lines. >> okay. stay safe out there. susan live in delaware. thank you. >> hurricane sandy is affecting air travel worldwide even at sfo. all flights have been canceled for the next 48 hours. elissa over at sfo speaking with some of the travellers. have most of them gotten the warning or are some surprised? >> reporter: most tr
want to make sure that people have realistic expectations but i can promise you the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials and we won't quit until this is done. >> reporter: i think this image is probably the one that sticks with me the most. just home after home buried in sand. entire neighborhoods completely wiped out. and for the people who live there, it's slowly sinking in that everything in these coastal communities that they've grown to love, it's all going to have to be rebuilt but safety first. and in most of these coastal communities every city you go to, city after city, all you can hear is the hissing of natural gas. residents there very concerned about the chance for even more fires and we've already seen how bad that can be in new york city. we'll have more on that destruction there especially in the breezy point neighborhood coming up at 6:30. >> we were talking -- you can't even get trailers for people to stay in as temporary housing because there's no infrastructure and you've got to clear away all of that debris. >
planning halloween events this coming saturday instead. out in ohio government officials are urging caution for parents there as well. high winds postponing halloween there and downed power lines in some parts of the state. hershey, pennsylvania, arguably the chocolate capital of the world take a look at that. that led to the cancellation of all halloween activities. a state of emergency across all of pennsylvania. something tells me halloween will be celebrated one way or another, today, saturday, whenever. i can't imagine too many parents that have young kids like myself saying too bad, no candy. jenna: look what i brought for the set, for the kids up here. they're not eating it. they're letting me eat it all. >> post-show meeting i will take it off your hands. jenna: we'll keep some for you, rick, thank you. jon: there are new calls for answers in the deadly benghazi terror attack that left four americans dead including u.s. ambassador chris stevens. that happened on september 11th a group of senators including senator john mccain writing to president obama asking him to stop stonewallin
potentially are in the path of the storm. a top government forecaster says this is the worst case scenario. >> ten states and washington, d.c., have already declared a state of emergency. financial markets are closed today. and schools also closed in several states. public transport has been shut down in new york new jersey, philadelphia, baltimore, and washington. and more than 7,000 flights have been canceled so far today. we have a team of correspondents along the east coast this morning watching headquarter sandy. jeff gore begins our coverage in atlantic city, new jersey, where the center of sandy is likely to come ashore later today. jeff good morning. >> reporter: nora, good morning to you. conditions have gotten significantly worse here in atlantic city in just the past hour or so as we await sandy's landfall later this evening. the ocean behind us atlantic city's famed boardwalk here in front of us, already taking damage. one of the many areas that will be lashed by sandy today. from space, you can see the full size and scope of this event. from north carolina to
this campaign from the beginning has been about. >> that's right. this is about the roll of government, what it's for. whether there's enough money to do the job that it's supposed to do. it is a serious question of what we ask the federal government to do. are either campaigns going to take that and try to make an argument about it on the stump? it doesn't seem like that's going to be the case based on my reporting this morning. the president is not going to make a larger argument about this is why we need to fund the federal government. mitt romney has talked about >>> a ship featured in hollywood blockbusters didn't make it through super storm san different we'll show you how the coast guard saved nearly a dozen soldiers next on "cbs this morning." these are our ocean spray 100% juice blends with no added sugar, just one glass equals two servings of fruit. very fruit-tritious. or, try ocean spray light 50 with just 50 calories, a full serving of fruit and no added sugar. with tasty flavors like cranberry-pomegranate and cranberry- concord grape, it's like a fruit stand in every
of the things they do is basically subsidize in part the culture with some government support of saying it's important. >> the amount of government support for pbs is relatively small, a huge part of the support comes from people who care about it. it's not actually a subsidized activity so much as it is subject to market forces and there are a set of people who say i want that i like it want to pay for it and i think you see this with new technology platforms like kick starter where people r you know, saying hey, would you like this, would you pay for this and there is this incredible new direct mechanism for authors an other creators to say would you care about what i wanted to do. >> i'm so glad that you brought that up. because i think the elitist element was that books were selected and it was the editor who selected it. and then it was put into certain book stores. and the independent book store which i am a great fan of was a little intimidating for people who didn't know, how to find the book that they want. then the superstores tried to make that better and the big box merchandise
in that is this was not necessarily a wind event, it was a storm surge event. most of that is covered by government storm insurance. if we look at the most expensive storms, could this be worse than the isaacs and hurricane andrew >> in public opinion, it is not always clear what really caused the damage. people fight with their insurers for years. as a practical matter, the biggest flood risk and storm surge risk will come not from personal customers, but rather from commercial concerns. not that there is anyone who looks at this and says it will not be a manageable event, but if we are likely to get -- it will be a question of who will pay for this. liz: before we go, who do you think comes out a winner here? >> well, you know, we like allstate. if you look for some context, look at the group you had before. the industry has been doing well because they have been raising pricing. allstate is the easiest sort of long-term pricing recovery story because they have a substantial number of captivation. they sell only one product. allstate is able to push pretty substantial price increases through when they need to. t
. whether the government s getting authoritarian is troubling all of us. >> rose: but the secular state remains? >> of course, no problem about that. sigs secular state remains and democracy is working in turkey. >> rose: and erdogan goes around the world preaching secularism. he went to cairo and preached secularism. >> i'm happy about that. >> rose: go ahead. >> i'm happy that erdogan is preaching secularismn cairo. i' alapp about arab spring you look at libya, you don't know what's going on there, syria, you don't know how that's going to end. it's the rise of islamists in the middle east. what's your perspective and where it might be going? >> okay, first, i'm a write. i judge events, human point of view instead of ideological preconceived ideas and for me democracy is the criteria for democracy, i believe in democracy because it's morally important. it's a moral issue democracy means first of all morally that you go to people and ask their opinions in that sense i'm very happy about the arab spring about whether it's in turkey or say inairo the army is marginalize add bit in cairo.
